@SeB,
nice work, i fiddled on fluxbox quite a lot too, but alas, finally gave up on it.

XFCE4 provides me for much less effort, and the performance is just about the same.

I suppose I have to relate this post to the topic, so here's my current desktop, but like my netbook I don't imagine it will change much in the future.

Info: this is a very intriguing wallpaper and I absolutely love it. It was a student piece at the Moscow Broadcast Design School submitted in October 2016. If you happen to be interested in computer art and abstract design then do check out this link to their page.
shamelessly used for my desktop, adjusted conky accordingly.

I posted in this thread years ago. Here's my new desktop, still with a 1600x1200 monitor (I prefer 4:3/fullscreen,) newer 1920x1080 drawing monitor/pad, and new 4k monitor. This screenshot is only 10% jpeg quality, so it looks better in real life, but I left it full size.

Nice work, I haven't used 'if' statements with conky. I'll have to work on my config.
